Used this for some dull shots with models, remembered it used blues in one of its filters. I like the effect it gives fog shots, making them cooler and subtly brining out the images masked by the fog.

Fog shots are always a careful balance between the fog and the image obscured.

It's actually very contrasty if you look at it at the right angle. Perfect.

Very minimalistic. Maybe the boat is a tad too soft for me.

Oh. Iím not sure Ďenhanceí is the right word, or at least on a personal level. If anything, itís anti-contrast. I think I might have been inclined to make it whiter in tone rather than the bluey grey you have gone for; go full minimalism. I have a feeling this isnít going to do well, but, itís not a bad photo. Itís a little too ill-defined perhaps, but in conveys an atmosphere, and ambience and really, how else are foggy conditions along the coast going to come out? Canít say itís quite my cup of tea, but it has something. Itís not a ten second review shot. And itís one of the few photos I can actually hear.

My First Weighted Scoring System ô; composition + technical 1/3, challenge* 1/1, post processing results 1/2, ooooh factor 2/3 (itís a grower), originality 1/1 = 6 (* I donít think itís possible to not meet the challenge on this one so everyone gets a 1/1)

I can't see enough contrast to figure out what this is. I thought it might be my monitor, so, before voting, I checked on another. Now I am wondering if it is my eyes.

At first I thought it was just sensor dust, but after staring at it, an image of a boat appears. Maybe its just a Rorschach type of thing.
